  1. Personal injury
    67%
    2007-08 President of Az Assoc. for Justice (Az Trial Lawyers Assn). I have been representing claims locally since 1974 on a contingent, % basis for injured victims of auto, cycle and trucking negligence, nursing home abuse, unsafe roads and premises, product liability, intentional misconduct (such as DUI), medical negligence, government carelessness and various other types of claims for damages. I am Editor in Chief of Az Personal Lien Law and Practice, 2nd Ex. (2007): we get discounts for you.

  2. Wrongful death
    23%
    We are handling an increasing number of wrongful death cases as our 36 year old law firm has become highly regarded, allowing us to handle the most significant claims. We have the experience and knowledge to retain excellent experts to assist us in obtaining the best possible result for our clients. We often handle the probate for no additional fee if we are representing the wrongful death claim.

  3. Insurance
    10%
    Nearly all our cases, as a practical matter, are defended by insurers, whether the claim is against the insured adverse party for a negligence type of claim or directly against the insurer for breach of contract, etc. Disputing the liability and amount of damages of these claims successfully is what we do. We obtain a recovery for over 99% of our clients, and we do it honestly, the old fashioned way: with hard work, experience and lots of hard-earned knowledge.

I enjoy recreation and travel with my family, hikes in the forest, trail running with my dogs, watching football and basketball games, mountain biking, reading both fiction and non-fiction, and volunteering for some charitable organizations that I admire. 

Our law firm enjoys helping people who need our help with injury and death claims and the many unexpected issues that arise.  We enjoy developing strong and lasting relationships with our new clients. We take particular pride in using our expertise in connection with personal injury recovery liens (Medicare, AHCCCS/Medicaid, ERISA, Medical Provider, workers compensation and other rights of recovery and/or liens against the injured person's settlement, award or judgment) to obtain lawful discounts in the amount owed. We usually do not charge our clients anything additional for this lien reduction legal work.

We also enjoy getting good results for our clients in the few cases that cannot be resolved by settlement.  For example, in October of 2010, we obtained a jury verdict for $655,000 for an elderly woman injured by a negligent driver while walking in a crosswalk. The other driver offered only $15,000 to settle. Her lawyer asked the jury at the end of the trial to award only $110,000 despite our client having over $200,000 in medical expenses.

In another case, we represented a 94 yr. old man with Alzheimer's disease who was swindled by his granddaughter and her husband out of his life savings. At trial, we proved that 11 bank accounts were used to create confusion as to where the money went, but we proved to the jury that over $400,000 was taken. The jury verdict included our legal fees, taking the total to $560,000.

Extremely helpful
Mr. Jensen took the time to review my case, read through my documents and provided me with the best way to pursue the case in a way that would be most beneficial for me to have a successful outcome.

Chris Jensen was a legal Eagle!
I worked with Chris after being in a car accident. He was so helpful and caring. I had a lot of anxiety involving the legal process with the other driver's insurance and my medical bills. Chris worked diligently to get my case resolved, while putting me at ease. Once he and his staff became involved I no longer had the stress and I could focus 100% on getting better from my injuries. He is hands down the best attorney for accident/ injury and I would recommend anyone going through something similar to go See Chris Jensen immediately!
